After Dusk 05:48
AFTER DUSK music: Mike Rud, lyrics: Diane Nalini Among the folded letters that he keeps Within a space forgotten, buried deep Words she wrote in haste Tenderly embraced Now resound forever in their hiding place And after dusk, he wanders through the park When memories play havoc in the dark Though she lingers there, Now he must prepare To face the world alone and move beyond despair And in his dreams, the dance begins once more Safe in his arms, she leads him through the door But the spell must break Suddenly he wakes Nothing there to fill the hollow ache Beyond the farthest corner of his mind Within a place forgotten, lost in time Though she lingers there, Now he must prepare To face the world alone and move beyond despair.

THE PORTRAIT ON THE WALL by Diane Nalini I remember the stars in your eyes So bright, I drowned in their glow I recall their melancholy tenderness Your vagrant eyes that said goodbye to life So long ago Stare at me from a portrait on the wall I remember the nights when I cried To hear your softest refrain I recall the sadness in your song Can it be that only yesterday I heard your voice Telling me not to remember anymore


Reviews of After dusk:

"After dusk is a gorgeous collection of standards sung with quiet, enunciated power." - Time Out magazine (London, UK)

"Nalini relies on a pure tone and sensitive lyric interpretation for her impact. Choosing to be backed by only guitar and bass further adds to her no-safety-net approach. Happily, it all works wonderfully." - Ian McGillis, Planet Jazz Magazine

"Performing with only guitar and bass presents a challenge that few singers would accept. The outstanding contributions of Mike Rud and Dave Watts as both accompanists and soloists have helped Diane meet the challenge and present an intimate trio performance of unadorned beauty." Doug Rollins

"What I like about Diane's singing is its honesty, lack of affectation and her obvious love of the music she is performing. Her pitching and phrasing are very musical, and her voice natural and extremely "listenable". This is her first CD, and it contains a lovely range of material beautifully performed here by Diane and her accompanists." - Acclaimed jazz vocalist Norma Winstone.
